, i think he's stating what has been republican policy for a long time. ronald reagan supported foreign aid, george h.w. bush and george w. bush also understood. i grew up in dubai, i understand. what i do disagree with and what the governor will also disagree with is we do need to probably stop funding countries that clearly aren't working in our interests. >> give me a name or two. >> well, i think if you look at the present course being run in egypt or even in pakistan, i think we need to put some restrictions on our dollars being spent there. >> because the u.s. does give more than $1 billion a year to each of these countries, almost $2 billion to pakistan. donna, is that money well spent or money thrown away? >> no. i think it's important we do leverage our foreign dollars, whether we're giving them $1 billion or less than that. it's an important leverage to use in our diplomatic tool box. but at a time when most americans are feeling the pressure of this recession or still feeling the pressure, there's no question that they're going to ask our leaders not to spend so much.
